I have been trying to get the HMC6352 compass module from sparkfun to work without any success.
I have used every variation of code examples that i could find. I tried the one from the playground, I tried the library from here http://rubenlaguna.com/wp/2009/03/19/arduino-library-for-hmc6352/, and read through every post that I can find.
It seems as though some people have gotten this working, but I just cant get it to go. I have been able to get them to compile, and run, but it just wont send the data back.
To check if perhaps mine had a different address, I tried to run the I2c scanner from here http://todbot.com/blog/category/arduino/, this however didnt work for me. When I opened the serial port to view the output, there were just garbage characters.
This has got me wondering if there is something wrong with either my arduino, or my compass.
I am really stumped with this, and have gone past my ability to trouble shoot it.
If anyone can point me in the direction of working compass code that runs on v0018 or another way for me to test either the board or the sensor, I would really appreciate it.
